Spring Keystone Testing Information
The current plans for the administration of the state assessments have not been finalized at the state and federal levels due to the pandemic. One outcome from the curently proposed plans is to further extent the testing window. As a result, our originally scheduled dates for administering the PSSAs of April 19-30 have been moved. If the assessments are given this school year, the new testing window for PSSAs and Keystones may occur as early as May 4, 2021 and conclude as late as May 25, 2021. When the Pennsylvania Department of Education provides further guidance, we will update South Fayette testing windows and information as soon as possible. All information will be listed on the South Fayette School District website.
